Equestrian

From top class showjumping to the Heavy Horse Village, there’s something for all equestrians at this year’s show including:

Livestock, Equestrian & Ring Timetables

Showjumping

We have a full programme of top class international level showjumping throughout the event. This year, showjumping will take place on all three days in the Balcombe Ring, as well as in the Ardingly Ring, where you can watch the Grand Prix spectacular, along with the International Stairway class. See timetable for full details of event locations and timings.

Scurry Driving

Scurry driving is a fast paced sport where a pair of ponies pull a carriage around the course, aiming to get the fastest time. Watch our competitors take part in small and large scurry heats and the scurry driving championship in the main ring.

Showing

We are delighted that thanks to the lifting of Covid restrictions we are able to welcome back equine showing this year show. There will be showing competitors from all over the country including ridden hunters, moorland ponies, elegant side saddle and more.

Heavy Horse Village

Owners go to enormous lengths to groom and prepare these gentle giants of the agricultural world before they take centre-stage in the main Ardingly Ring, so come along to the Heavy Horse Village, get up close, talk with the horses’ owners and discover more about one of our most popular breeds.

Equestrian Shopping Stands

From jodhpurs and dressage jackets, to brushes, shovels and other tack room accessories, you’ll no doubt find some great purchases at the Show.
